What is Wilmot's Current Visitor Policy?

Nov. 25, 2020

We understand how important loved ones are when it comes to cancer. However, people with cancer are among the most vulnerable when it comes to COVID-19. Knowing this, it is our responsibility to protect our patients and our employees by limiting visitation.

If you are coming to an appointment: No visitors are allowed to accompany patients to doctors’ follow-up appointments or treatments. This policy has very limited exceptions. Please speak with your care team if you have questions or concerns.

If you are admitted to the hospital and staying overnight: As of Nov. 25, we have a Zero Visitor policy in effect, due to a surge in coronavirus cases and New York state regulations. ‚ÄčThere are limited exceptions, such as for patients with dementia, pediatric patients, and end-of-life care. Please speak with your care team if you have questions.
